Amanda Bynes to stay under conservatorship

Amanda BynesAmanda Bynes, 28, will remain under the conservatorship of her mother.

The actress is ”doing well” under the care of Lynn Bynes – who was put in charge of her affairs for the second time last November after the Easy A star underwent a stint in a psychiatric hospital – and a judge ruled at a hearing yesterday that the arrangement will continue until the next hearing on June 23.

Her attorney David Esquibias told Access Hollywood: ”I am glad the arrangement is continuing. The legal process is working in Amanda’s favor. She’s doing well.”

The hearing comes a few weeks after it was ruled Amanda will not be charged with driving under the influence (DUI). The troubled actress was arrested in the early hours of September 28 2014 but the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office have now opted not to press charges but ”after much deliberation and review,” her case is being forwarded along to the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office as a possible probation violation.

Amanda’s arrest came just six months after she had got her driving license back after it was suspended by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) in September 2012 following two alleged hit-and-run incidents that year, though the charges were later dismissed.

The actress was also charged with DUI in April 2012 after she hit a police car in West Hollywood, but the charge was dropped in February 2014 and she was sentenced to three years of probation for reckless driving as part of a plea deal.

The DMV restored her license last April following three months of alcohol education classes as part of her plea deal.

    All these DUIs and hit and run incidents! Anyone else would be in prison, not just a psych ward. Too many double standards in the world. Glad to hear that she’s doing better, but next time, sorry, throw the book at her.

    I feel bad for this young women. She is seriously ill. “Throwing the book at her” will accomplish nothing.
